Pele’s daughter shares an old photo of herself with her legendary dad and sisters at a healthcare center event with the caption, ‘Time flies, happy moments last forever’ – as the 82-year-old’s condition worsens in hospital
The daughter of Brazilian soccer star Pele has posted a touching photo on social media as her father continues his fight for life.
Pele’s family gathers at hospital as his condition worsens – with Kelly Nascimento sharing a moment in the happy times as the 82-year-old receives care after his advanced colon cancer.
Taking to Instagram, Nascimento shared a photo of the soccer icon alongside her two other daughters – Flavia and Jennifer – at the Gala Pequeno Principe, a healthcare facility.
“Time flies, happy moments last forever,” she added to the beautiful photo.

Nascimento also shared a photo on Christmas Day from the Israelita Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo, Brazil, with a touching caption.
She took to her Instagram profile again later in the day to express her gratitude to the medical staff at the hospital.
“We always have so much to be grateful for, even spending Christmas in the hospital, we know what a privilege it is to be in a hospital like @hosp_einstein,” she wrote.
She posted a picture of his family on Instagram Christmas Day along with a post thanking the hospital staff for their care of the 82-year-old footballer.
“To see our father being treated by such professionals, so efficient and so affectionate.”
Greats like Rivaldo paid tribute, and soccer fans from around the world prayed for the health of one of soccer’s most famous sons.
The Brazilian legend had a polyp removed from his colon in September 2021, but was taken to hospital on November 29.
Pele, considered one of the greatest soccer players of all time, won three World Cups with Brazil
A hospital statement issued last week said Pele required further care “in connection with renal and cardiac abnormalities”.
The daughter of the three-time World Cup winner confirmed that family members will spend Christmas with him in hospital, with the grandchildren also joining.
Pele is widely considered the greatest player in Brazilian history and was able to watch his country’s campaign to the World Cup in Qatar, despite being in hospital.
He burst onto the world stage as a 17-year-old at the 1958 World Cup, helping Brazil achieve the first of their record five successes, before also winning World Cup 1962 and 1970 with the national team.
Romário, one of Pele’s former rivals, wished the Brazilian soccer legend well in a video recently posted on social media.
Talking to J Globo, Romario said: King, get better. Lots of faith. The whole world is looking for you and praying for you. Improvements! I kiss your heart.
